MA in Islam and Sustainable Development
In partnership with the Markfield Institue of Higher Education, the Penny Appeal Centre for Islam and Sustainable Development is offering a unique MA in Islam and Sustainable Development.
This unique programme responds to the emerging sustainable development agenda, which has become a key policy determinant in many societies. The programme critically explores a range of perspectives and debates surrounding Islam and sustainable development in the contemporary global environment and professional context. It provides students with a critical understanding of sustainable development theory and practice, and the skills required to critically analyse and evaluate sustainable development research, policy and practice, targeting Muslim communities in a range of contexts.
The course can be delivered full-time, part-time or block mode.
- Full-time: two days per week for two semesters and one more semester for
dissertationproject. Each semester is 12 weeks = 36 weeks in total over 12 months (Sept to Aug; or between Feb to May the year after) – students will do 4 modules each semester (total of 8 modules) followed by a dissertation.
- Part-time: as above but one day per week over two years.
